Liisa Mudist (b. 1994 Tallinn) is a Helsinki-based Estonian artist working predominantly with oil painting and poetry. They work intuitively and spontaneously from personal experience and memory. Their work can be described as reflecting notions of simple, sweet moments in everyday life – but also society and politics, and the experiences and trauma handed down to us by the post-soviet generation – through material, sound, colour and the body. They approach these questions always from a position of lived experience: their experience as a non-binary person; experience as a person born into a neo-liberal Estonia, a country that only gained its independence relatively recently.
Theoretically, they draw from philosophers and writers working with gender, capitalism, and ecology, while from a material standpoint, they are inspired by an aim to work in an environmentally sustainable way.
